Sen. Whitehouse Hails Passage of Same-Sex Marriage Law
Providence, RI – U.S. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse released the following statement today regarding Rhode Island’s new law granting same-sex couples the right to marry:
“I’m proud of our state for taking this important step toward equality for all, and I want to particularly congratulate Governor Chafee on an historic legislative victory. His staunch support – along with the work of Speaker Fox and his allies in the legislature, and the grassroots efforts of the LGBT community – made this great day possible for Rhode Island.”
Whitehouse is a long-time supporter of marriage equality. He is a cosponsor of the Respect for Marriage Act, which would repeal the law that prohibits recognition of same-sex marriage under federal law.
